MIPI Ecosystem

Your embedded vision solution with the MIPI Ecosystem

VC MIPI® is more than a camera module – it is the combination of all components included in the ecosystem. With the large selection of image sensors, compatible processor boards and matching accessories, we develop your individual embedded vision solution.

What is a MIPI Camera?

MIPI cameras were originally developed for smartphones and other mobile applications. Although “MIPI camera” has become an established name, the term CSI camera is more precise, insofar as they use the MIPI CSI-2 interface (Camera Serial Interface-2) defined by the MIPI-Alliance (Mobile Industry Processor Interface Alliance)
for fast data transfer between camera sensor and processor board.
The interface is supported by numerous processors.
Meanwhile, the ultra-compact MIPI camera modules have also become a standard for industrial embedded vision applications, as they can be easily and flexibly integrated into numerous smart devices and systems.

VC MIPI® camera modules are specially designed for use in industrial applications and series products and are available with numerous image sensors, even with those that do not natively support a MIPI interface. Our MIPI CSI cameras are ultra-compact, price-optimized, long-term available and robust. With their 22-pin connector and various VC FPC cables with 15, 22 and 26 pins they can be connected to all common processor boards. Corresponding drivers are available in source code. Extensive accessories such as cable extensions, illumination and lens holders enable the fast setup of embedded vision solutions for all industries and applications.

Compatible with all common processor boards

The VC MIPI® cameras are compatible with most popular processor boards. They can be easily connected via the MIPI CSI-2 interface. The interoperation is tried and tested with many platforms.
